Between 2005-2009, the United States Food & Drug Administration has learned of around 1,000 incidences of women that have encountered dangerous side-effects from using transvaginal patches.
The dangerous side-effects that women have reported include:
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Bowel, Bladder and Blood Vessel Perforation
In late 2008, the Food and Drug Administration announced that many complaints about the side-effects were accurate.
The side-effects have resulted in women having to undergo surgery, such as blood transfusions.
There are several manufacturers of transvaginal patches, such as Bard, American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, Ethicon, Gynecare and Johnson & Johnson.
Any women who thinks they are suffering from side-effects due to the transvaginal patch should seek attention immediately.
